Some minor procedures, which do not require referral to hospital, are done in the surgery in a dedicated minor surgery suite. Your doctor will advise you if your condition is suitable for treatment here and a special appointment will be arranged. This almost always involves a shorter waiting time than being referred to the hospital.
Periods of absence from work of six days or less do not need a doctor’s certificate. Self certificates (Form SC2) for the first week of illness are available from your employer, post offices and our reception desk.
We do not therefore issue a doctors certificate for the first six working days of sickness.
We are happy to undertake, by appointment, medical examinations and reports for insurance companies. We can also provide specific reports for such things as fitness to travel and sporting activities, and will complete other medical reports, for example, holiday cancellation and driving requirements.
This work is not covered by the NHS system and may incur a charge in line with the BMA recommended scale. Please check the charge when booking your appointment or requesting information.
Payment is requested in advance; we accept cash only for these services. You will be notified when the certificate or report is ready; please allow up to 2 weeks.
